Sure why not? The library here is harmless...plus it's not like they're 5...am I missing something here?
10 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 1/9/12 - 4:37:53 PM EST (GMT-5)
Sure.
10 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 1/9/12 - 4:41:41 PM EST (GMT-5)
Leave them? No. They can find their own way there. I'm staying at home.
10 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 1/9/12 - 4:53:43 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes if they know the way home.
10 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 1/9/12 - 4:54:53 PM EST (GMT-5)
Of course. I'd be happy my kid wanted to go to the library anyway.

10 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 1/9/12 - 5:16:02 PM EST (GMT-5)
So long as they had a way home and trusted them to not be douches.
10 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 1/9/12 - 5:18:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
well yeah, i'm one year younger and allowed to go places alone.
10 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 1/9/12 - 9:35:43 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes unless its like detroit or something
10 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 1/9/12 - 9:36:04 PM EST (GMT-5)
They should be required to go at least once a week.

Old enough to care for themselves and be safe.

I used to go on my own quite regularly when I was 11ish - probably younger
10 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Tuesday 1/10/12 - 6:03:34 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah... I'd allow a 10 year old to go to the library by themselves, stay there and come back. Or the mall or other stuff.

When I was like 7-8, me and my friend would take the bus downtown and to the mall, never any problems.

W15 is practically an adult, in terms of the everyday stuff they should be able to handle without supervision.

I think I was 15 or maybe 16 when I flew internationally by myself for the first time.

What kind of question is this?
I can hardly think of a safer place than the public library.

I'm not worried about the safety of the 15 year old, I'd be more concerned about the librarian having to put up with unsupervised 15 year olds...

It is fine i think you should not restrict it based on age but on how mature they are.
10 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Tuesday 1/10/12 - 12:57:24 PM EST (GMT-5)
if you don't think it is ok your just an overprotective asshole
10 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Tuesday 1/10/12 - 8:06:18 PM EST (GMT-5)
no, they might get raped by a book or something

One of my best friends is a YA librarian and deals with this all the time. He SO rarely has problems, because c'mon, these are the kids who are actually hanging out at the *library* after school, rather than gallivanting around town causing trouble.
10 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Tuesday 1/10/12 - 8:34:50 PM EST (GMT-5)
Nah, I'd have to nag them or bug them I'm sure.

If you insist on treating kids like babies until they're 20, they'll act like babies until they're 20.

There's nothing REALLY preventing people from being rather mature from like 12-13 up.

You...having a kid? LOL!

Sure. Wouldn't bother me.

I feel like there should be backstory with this question.

My brother and I used to ride our bikes to the library alone every day in the summer time at ages younger than 15.
